Senior Consultant / Ph.D. / Tampa
Dr. Ye received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Wake Forest University, after earning his M.S. in Mechanical Engineering at University of Virginia. His primary areas of expertise include injury biomechanics, accident reconstruction, and sports injury evaluation.
Dr. Ye’s previous experience in academia includes computational modeling and crash reconstruction using finite element human body models, and analysis of lumbar spine and lower extremity injuries sustained in motor vehicle crashes.
He has also been involved in the development of a finite element football helmet model sponsored by the NFL for head concussion research. Additionally, his master’s research focused on the investigation of knee airbag effectiveness on lower extremity injuries using a combination of sled testing, computational modeling and field data analysis. He has extensive experience in data query using NASS-CDS and CIREN, which are two of the most commonly used databases for motor vehicle crash analysis. He has published peer-reviewed journal papers and presented at numerous national/international conferences.
